This blog is about sharing our experience of living in Singapore from February 2007 thru to February 2012 and all the wonderful things we saw, what we did and the places we have been. In other words, our everyday experiences! This blog will continue to survive as I add more information when appropriate.

every man's home is his castle!
what does your front doorway or entrance look like?
Is it welcoming?
Nice big shiny door with a welcome mat?
Flowers along the pathway leading to the entrance?
Big fancy door bell perhaps?
take a look at the following images of the homes at Luar Batang,
a village in Northern Jakarta close to the Pasar Ikan.
The homes are just as welcoming as yours are.
The people are just as welcoming as you are.
The front entrance though is very different.
Take a close look at each and everyone of the entrances
in the above images and
imagine what it would be like to live in a home such as this.
Very difficult isn't it?
But the 5000 people that live in this old village are people too,
they are proud of their homes,
are happy to have visitors
and all would welcome you into their homes.
just as you would
next time you walk in your front door, spare a thought for the people of Luar Batang in Jakarta.
